Cat® Compact

Compact Technologies

What can Cat Compact do for me?

By helping your operators meet compaction targets faster, more uniformly and in fewer passes, Cat® Compact technology drives up your quality and drives down your costs. On-the-go compaction measurements delivered via in-cab displays provide instant feedback—so your operators know exactly when they’ve met target values and can move on to the next task. Reporting and documentation tools give you a real-time view of progress and a record of compaction results.


What technology is available?

Choose from numerous options—ranging from compaction measurement all the way to full 3D mapping and machine-to-machine communication—that fit different applications and budgets. Cat Compact technology is available for:

  • Asphalt Compactors
  • Landfill Compactors
  • Soil/Aggregate Compactors


How do I get started?

On select new Cat equipment, you can choose fully integrated Cat Compact technology as a factory attachment. Your Cat dealer can also retrofit some systems to older equipment from Caterpillar or to machines from other manufacturers.
